The Vegetarian Ginger is a food blog based out of Toronto aimed at giving vegetarians the versatility and freedom of an unrestricted diet. Meals that give you the best bang for your buck, that are (mostly) healthy, flavourful and that meat-eaters wouldn’t hesitate to try. I want readers not to see vegetarianism as a dietary restriction but as the oppositeβ€”it’s an excuse to try new things, roll up your sleeves and be creative.

I am what’s called a lacto-ovo vegetarian, most easily explained as “I eat nothing with a face.” Eggs, cheese, honey; these are all OK by me. A good number of my recipes are vegan, lactose-free and gluten-free as well. I try to have a good balance between breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, including as many food groups as I can.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing about your mouth-watering experiences.

Sharing recipes/photos: For recipes, a simple link back is much appreciated. I work hard on each post and every photo is taken by me. If you wish to use my photography, please e-mail me (all my info is on the Contact page) for permission.

    Hey there! It’s obvious that photography is one of your passions – your photos are incredible! I’ve been vegan for a year and am always looking for new recipes and your blog looks like a great place to find some. Great blog – keep it up! Celeste:)

        Believe it or not, I used to eat cheese and ice cream everyday. If you told me just over a year ago that I’d give these up I would have thought you were crazy. Celeste:)

    You are awesome. And I’ve only just ‘met’ you (just shows how awesome you are, I can tell from some words and a photograph!). Love the recipes, photographs and inspiration… I can tell I’m going to spend a bit of time here! And my blog’s only been up since last May as well. Can’t believe it’s almost a year to the day!

      Thank you! I hope you enjoy the recipes you experiment with πŸ™‚ I try to leave the recipes as appealing as possible to people without dietary restrictions too, I guess it works sometimes haha

    just came across your NatPost article and the link to your blog. While a carnivore, I’m always on a lookout for good vegetarian dishes *and* well layed out blogs. Looking forward to ‘cooking with you’.
